The Sea Survival Conference 2015 is a one-day conference for pilots of light aircraft wishing to learn more about how to maximise both their and their passengers' chances of survival should something go wrong while flying over water (or inhospitable terrain).
Whether you regularly fly over the sea, or only make occasional one-off trips you have probably wondered what survival equipment you should carry, and how you would summon help and cope with ditching should you get into difficulties. This conference will help with advice from experts and accounts of first-hand experiences.
The programme of speakers includes:
Fly over Water Procedures and Recommendations
Water and Raft Survival
Richard Pyshorn / Jason Hicks
Search and Rescue Co-ordination
Roly Mckie, Deputy Head of Maritime Operations, HM Coastguard
Rescue by Boat
Scott Ranft, RNLI
